Farm Wife Devotions: Round Up 2.0!!
These devotions have truly been a labor of love! I've been joined by three sweet women in ag, to share what God is teaching them, right here in our weekly Farm Wife Devotions! I am so grateful for their love for God and their spirit of generosity!
Did you know there are now over 30 devotions?!
You can find them all simply by selecting "Farm Wife Devotions" in the blog category section either at the side of your computer screen or when you scroll down to the bottom on your phone! You can also find Farm Wife Devotions: Round Up 1.0 here!
It is our desire to bring you God's word to speak to your heart, encourage you through the struggles you face, and celebrate with you your day to day victories! Please help us do that by commenting at the bottom of the devotion, sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or messaging us at The Rural Sisterhood Facebook Page, when a specific subject speaks to your heart!
Here are short summaries for each of the devotions in this Round Up!
Pets in heaven
“When I was growing up, I was taught in school that animals do not go to heaven because they do not have a soul, like humans do. That is what sets us apart. I believed this for a long time. Whenever people mourned over the loss of a pet I thought it was silly and saying they were now in heaven was just plain delusional.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
“It is clear, that God’s peace, the peace that He offers to us, is clearly different than the peace the world offers! The world promises peace without struggle and rarely delivers.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
God plans our steps
“Almost 11 years later, I just sit and marvel at the divine plan that God had for my life. I couldn’t have planned it better myself. I never would have picked a farmer for my partner and I never would have chosen a farm to raise my family on.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
Anger: The Good The Bad The Ugly
“No matter what the situation and no matter where, we are still called to keep our anger in check.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
You have a purpose!
“We each have a God-given purpose. A purpose for our lives no matter what.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
“If He asks to go through a hard time, He will be there with us. He won’t make us go through it alone. During hard times He asks us to be strong and courageous and I would add that we are to find our strength and courage in Him.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
Pray for Orlando
“Let’s lift each and every person affected by this tragedy up in prayer. Pray for peace. Pray for strength. Pray that they have faith in His plan. Pray that our leaders can find a way to prevent continued loss of life. Pray that God can turn the hearts of those that are lashing out at their fellow man, causing so much destruction and grief.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
Are you Content?
“Was I truly content? Was I praying for God to do something so I could get out of the stressful situations with the farm? OR Was I praying that God would see us through this time of stress and worry?” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
Slow to Anger
“Being “slow to anger” or “slow to become angry” means that you don’t hear only what you want to hear from someone and react, but you think before you speak, process it and figure out whether or not anger is the appropriate response, before addressing the subject.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
I will praise Him in the storm
“God has our absolute best in mind, even if it doesn’t fit within our definition of “good”!” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
“We do not always understand God’s thoughts. His plans are so much greater than ours. When we are hurting and it seems like God isn’t doing anything to fix it, it is easy to lose sight of that. God does not live or work on our timeline.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
Ready to Race?
“You are in a race! A race to fulfill your calling! It doesn’t have to be a “fancy” calling. Each calling is just as equally important as the other! Motherhood is a calling. Help-meet is a calling. Women’s ministry is a calling. Nursery worker is a calling. Farm Wife is a calling.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
All you need is love!
“Simply following God’s word is not enough. We must do so with love.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
The thief of joy: Comparison
“As women it is so easy to fall into the comparison trap. We drop our kiddos off at school and look at another mother who appears to have it all together and we think, “Gosh, if only I could have it together like she does!” We look at another Farm Wife and think, “They are doing so well. She always has the best meals prepared and doesn’t seem to be as stressed as me.”” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
Who do you take it to?
“Who do you go to when you are angry or hurt? Do you turn to a friend? Co-worker? Family member? God? It seems like God is always the last place we go to when we are in trouble. Why is that? What is it that makes us rely on something or someone outside of Him to remedy it, when He is the one we should be turning to the whole time?!” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
Temples to thrive in!
“Our bodies are temples. How many times do we hear that throughout our lives? How many of us actually live it? I’ll come right out and say that I’m terrible at living it. In both the earthly sense and spiritual.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
Gentleness and Integrity
“Gentleness is a very powerful word; it means the considerate courtesy and respect of the integrity of others.” Click on the picture or the link below to read more!
